Question about Sony KP-57WS500 57" Rear Projection Television
I have a rear projection Sony KP57WV600. When I turn it on, it turns blue after a minute with blue arched lines at the top and bottom and then the flash focus blinks 5 times. the TV never comes on even though the sound is on. What could be the possible problems and how much will it cost to repair it?
Go to this site, follow the instructions, and it may fix your problems. I did, and my tv is better than ever!
I was having this problem with blue. I was able to fix it, and now my tv works again. For those having trouble removing a different front panel, here is what I found on mine -
I own a KP57WV600. Removing the front panel is a little trickier on this model. You remove the 6-8 screws on each side behind the two speakers. You will access these from the lower rear/sides of the TV. Remove the small 2ft plastic pieces. Now from the front of the machine grab the entire lower piece (speaker covers & power/volume/chanel buttons) from the bottom and pull down and towards yourself. There are 4 slots that this piece fits into. I had to take off the lower back panel to see why it wouldn't come out. Don't pull to far because this lower front piece is connected to wires. I'd say you have about a foot of play. Now you can remove the fiber board panel and access the blue/green/red lower screws. When you adjust these, go a fraction of a milimeter at a time.

Hello. have a rear projection Sony KP51HW40. When I turn it on, it turns blue and then the picture is gone, but the sound continues.
I discovered this tech support website and followed your instructions. My son removed the front panel door and adjusted the bolts/screws. And just as you said "Voila", the problem was solved. I can hardly believe how simple this was. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

IT IS YOU BLUE PICTURE TUB(CRT). THESE SONY ARE COMMON TO HAVE THE CRT GO OUT. I HAVE COMPLAINED TO THEM TODAY. THE PRICE IS $300 FOR THE TUBE AND TRY TO FIND A TECH TO INSTALL FOR $150.00 OR LESS. YOU MAY NEED ADJUSTMENTS AFTER IT IS INSTALLED. HERE IS THE WEBSITE THAT HELP ME WITH THE ADJUSTMENT. AND I DID THEM MYSELF. I HOPE THIS HELPS.
